    What time is too late to play pool on a weeknight?

    I'm know I'm becoming an old head, but my league night started at 7:30, and ended...at...11:45 at night. On a Tuesday. I have a family at home. Work. I really don't want to be out late at night, driving around town with paperwork to drop off before heading home. And once, I'm at home, it's...

    Get behind me, Burt, I CAN'T LOSE!

    I'm taking on all comers, and have a rock solid two match winning streak going, ripping through APA SL4s and SL5s like a hot knife through butta. I'm looking for my next challenge, and am bursting the seams with beaming confidence. My level of play is rad to the power of sick, and my Samsara...

    Wonder if any pros got their start playing bumper pool?

    Wonder if anybody (willing to admit) got their feet wet in pool on a bumper pool table?

    Should we have a separate sub-forum for call outs and bashing the pros?

    When I'm in the mood to read a good call out or pro player bashing, sometimes I have to sift through a couple of pages of "what's the best tip out there" before arriving at a thread I'm looking for. Sometimes, reading about big time staked games that usually have very little chance of ever...

    Learned someone I do a lot of business with is a player!

    I had the pleasure of learning that someone I speak with about once or twice a day for the past five or six years is an avid pool player and collector. Kind of guy who built his basement around his Gold Crown III, owns lots of collector cues, memorabilia, magazine subscriptions, and has a...

    Youtube: Earl Strickland vs Keith McCready 1988

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHQw9T5uvyk Part one of seven. Simply click onto next "Related video" to continue onto the second video, then the third, etc. I'm 34, and have NEVER seen Keith McCready play until that video. It's easy to see why people talk about unused talent. I've also...

    ***OFFICIAL*** Review: Play Better Pool: Mastering The Basics with S. Lee and Randy G

    I really don't want to give a grade on this video, just express what it has to offer, and why you might be interested. First off, I did attend Scott Lee's Pool School, and most of the material he and Randy G cover in this DVD is redundant with the class. This, IMO, is a good thing. That...

    Mini Impromptu AZ billiards gathering last night

    After Scott Lee was finished an all day class with Calvin (need to find his on line AZ handle), we played some ring games of ten ball. It was a blast, and I also was able to purchase a copy of Scott's new instructional video direct! Some people just make you want to play better, and their...

    Checking the rack

    After viewing the widely discussed Joe Tucker's DVD "Racking Secrets" I have now become a rack checker, myself. As Joe covers, this can be an issue for some players, even if I have NEVER asked for a re rack in my life, and am only glancing over the rack for no longer than a few seconds...

    I have a weak side on cut shots

    I seem to constantly over cut shots when shooting to the right. I'm left handed, and feel that some may have the same issue, but to the left, if you will. The same mirror image to the opposite side seems easy, I can see it feel it, but my weak side at times makes me feel like I'm shooting to a...

    "Hey, where's your break cue?"

    Last night, my teammate asked me "Hey Gregg, where's your break cue?" My response? "It's in my cue case." And that was all I had to say about that. I don't need to sit around and worry about someone who will not care for my equipment like I would. My Sledgehammer has already struck a table...

    Shot at places like these?

    Shot last night at a bar where the kitchen was closed due to the cook being arrested on drug distribution charges. Bathroom, the size a broom closet, normally has two people coughing, wheezing, and sniffing heavily in the toilet stall. Hand written sign on the back of the bathroom stall door...
